|Title:||Carbon-accounting methods and reforestation incentives||Contributor(s):||Cacho, OJ (author) ; Hean, RL (author); Wise, RM (author)||Publication Date:||2003||DOI:||10.1111/1467-8489.00208||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/81||Abstract:||The emission of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, and the consequent potential for climate change are the focus of increasing international concern. Temporary land-use change and forestry projects (LUCF) can be implemented to offset permanent emissions of carbon dioxide from the energy sector. Several approachesto accounting for carbon sequestration in LUCF projects have been proposed. In the present paper, the economic implications of adopting four of these approaches are evaluated in a normative context. The analysis is based on simulation of Australianfarm–forestry systems. Results are interpreted from the standpoint of both investors and landholders. The role of baselines and transaction costs are discussed.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||The Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics, 47(2), p. 153-179||Publisher:||Blackwell Publishing||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1364-985X||Field of Research (FOR):||140205 Environment and Resource Economics||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 230
